Doesn't have missed lyric in The Other One. Seems like it may be still missing some music but, if it is, the d/o is much less drastic.
Ahhhhhhh Frost Ampitheater. One the campus of the Farm, looking West towards the rugged redwood Santa Cruz Mountains (and towards the direction of Ken Kesey's La Honda Creek Pad), this intimate grassy tree lined bowl was the perfect setting to see The Boys. Sunny Springtime shirtless gyrations amidst Heavenly Jerry Tingles, this show exudes 80s tingle dancing surfer smiles while getting totally tubed by six Sublime Musical Artisans laying down the Golden Carpet.
My Brother Esau could be one their greatest vintages of that label ...ever. So clean, moist and tight, with the special jerry orgasm solo, almost wanting more jizz, but he finishes quick.
Ramble On Rose with it's vocal crescendo shivers, and a spiral powder line during Scarlet inspires Tom Curren'esque power and flow sprays against an indigo sky.
Oh, and watch out for those laughing gas groves in the Eucalyptus forest outside the annual Mellow Head Frost BBQ; you might end up stepping into another tab of Owsley Bear Vision Quest (Psssssssssssss...)

I think there are good and bad Dead shows from all decades. There is no cut-off point where they stopped playing well. The band had very high standards and would not have continued touring if they weren't able to uphold them.

I agree with the last post. I love this show. I had it on tape for many years and listened to it a ton. I always loved the trippy sound of the early to mid eighties......
First off, don't read this clown's review directly below me...Now read this... :)
how can i be the first to review this great sounding, well played show? Maybe I will revise it after I get passed the first song. :)~ Why did Bob stop playing Brother Esau? One of his better songs I feel...

Jerry is Struggling
I really try to listen to stuff after 1977, but it's just painful to hear how labored Jerry's voice had become....
